Today's County commission-THE PROBLEM!
This "item for consideration" from today's county Ways and Means committee agenda is classic "Muskegon" politics.
1. "In an effort to be efficient with current resources...". What the heck does that mean?
2. What do these "reclassifications" mean to the county and to the taxpayer? More spending?
3. "General fund is a net zero adjustment..". OK...what does that mean?
Not one commissioner knows what the answer is to any of these questions.
I doubt that any will even ask and/or receive a clear answer from administrator Hammersley.
And the pay increase shifting will continue in stealth mode as the union insiders continue their stranglehold on our county.
Don't we expect our county leaders to know what they are voting for BEFORE they vote?
Don't they know we're broke?
This is going on in municipalities across the country.
And it is wrong!
